Despite reports that the Royals were cooling off to the idea of bringing in Joe Guillen, talks have picked up tonight and they are closing in on a three year deal, worth 35-40 million dollars. I'm sure there might be an opt clause in case more comes up about the purchase of HGH, but this is still a good deal for them. Guillen batted .290 with 21 HR and 99 RBI, numbers that would help the Royals a lot. Not only that, but with him, Billy Butler, and Alex Gordon they could make a pretty decent run, considering what they have done over the past couple of years. The Royals are also eying Hiroki Kuroda, along with Carlos Silva.
